We had several unfortunate experiences in our stay at vrede en lust. Firstly arriving on Sunday we were unable to find anyone to show us to our room. The wine tasting said it was nothing to do with them. Took over three quarters of an hour to get sorted. The shower and kitchen were grubby and there were spider webs in bedroom. The pool was also a bit murky on the Sunday. On the plus side it was a lovely comfortable bed and the complimentary wine helped to soothe frazzled feelings on arrival. If we hadn't had some other stand out stays perhaps it would not have been so disappointing. Eikendahl for example is superb service! Main annoyance was the rather dismissive response to constructive criticism which was to refer to the tripadvisor excellent ratings - not really the best customer service!

We stayed in the cottage 'Marguerite ',and what a treat it turned out to be ; a fabulously comfortable bed of very generous proportions within a well appointed en suite bed room full of period furniture ..not to mention the enormous lounge and unexpected second bedroom.Outside the manicured grounds have a lovely swimming pool for residents only with far reaching mountain views. Fab breakfast served in the on site restaurant and complementary wine tasting with the legendary ladies in red !We will return !

We have been fortunate enough to have just celebrated our wedding at VnL with family and friends and it was simply amazing. Of course there are all those anxieties before the big day but in hindsight we were being ridiculous. This however can only have been made possible by Willem and his team who couldn't have been more helpful and professional. There were inevitably hitches on the day but these were handled efficiently and without us even knowing about it at the time. We had hired the Manor House and the Cottages and our guests have nothing but praise for the quality and comfort of their stay. The braai option the night before the wedding is something not to be missed as the food is top quality. Simply put, Vrede En Lust is the most incredible venue to have a wedding where phenomenal long lasting memories are created not just for the new Mr and Mrs but also for family and friends. Thank you Willem!!

... this place is absolutely perfect. We had the chance to stay in the main house which made it the stay really special. The venue is brilliant for a wedding and the backdrop of the vines and the moutons make it very photogenic. Breakfast is served each day at the restaurant next to the main gate and the food is a perfect combination of taste and nutrition. In fact the restaurant was so good that we ended up eating lunch there as well. Despite the sweltering summer heat the outside terrace is regularly cooled by wafts of micro-mist. Make sure you try the Rosé from the farm - everyone was raving about it.

On another note the restaurant is also responsible for the wedding catering which was equally fantastic. The waiting staff at the wedding managed just the right balance of attentiveness and invisibility. Not an easy task.

We held our wedding at VnL in December and the venue, the service and the care with which they dealt with us was phenomenal. We both live in Australia which could have made things more difficult but they made our planning so easy and were great to deal with. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They were thoughtful, knew exactly what needed to be done and liaised with our wedding coordinator. They dealt with everything during the day which meant we could focus on enjoying our special day. All of our guests loved it and I'd hate to be the next of our friends that get married ... VnL raised the bar to an impossible level. Thanks so much

Room Tip: They're all amazing
